Social Accounting Input-Output Matrix Model: Estimation of Multipliers and Impacts for Mexico, 2003
Using an applied general equilibrium model we reproduce an input-output model which in turn is used to estimate multipliers as well as some additional impacts for Mexico. While the results are conceptually the same as those of a Leontief model, their interpretation is simpler and the model is more flexible. The resulting model keeps the transparency and simplicity of an input-output model, compared with more complex general equilibrium models. The estimations are interesting because they show the possible effects of economic policy in the context of the present world economic crisis in which, because of the recent importance of fiscal policy, the Leontief model seems to have regained relevance.
